James Fisher’s specialist expertise and understanding of the unique demands of the marine environment enables us to offer integrated solutions in the development, construction and operation of offshore wind, wave and tidal stream arrays.

The offshore wind energy sector is undergoing an unprecedented period of expansion, particularly in UK territorial waters. Together with the proliferation of wave and tidal stream development projects planned or in progress, this is leading to an increased demand for well-equipped and expert marine support networks, capable of delivering marine engineering and support throughout the construction and operational life of the new facilities.

With its deep technical knowledge and understanding of the marine environment, James Fisher is ideally placed to assist offshore renewable energy developers with products and services, including structural monitoring, mooring and fendering systems, diving and sub-sea engineering, offshore personnel solutions, and marine operational expertise.
